Install HD3870 graphic card

I didn't succeed to install a jetway graphic card HD3870.
I supress the old pilot whith windows and then stop the computer. Install the new graphic card and boot. In windows the screen is very strange due to poor color and definition level ( only 4 bit fo color and 400*600 for definition, and now way to improve it ). Neverthless, I install the new pilot and try to reboot the computer, but the boot fail after the "windows" screen and the computer start to reboot. During this second boot, I have a very strange boot screen, with a lot of white points included in the normal Asus screen. Then the boot fails again at the same time and start to reboot....
The only way to recovr the computer is to reinstall the old graphic card ( HD2400 ) , and then it's work perfectly.
I try it on my two computers, and it's the same.
System:
motherboard: Asus P5KC, bios update 0804
CPU: E6750
memory: 4 x 1 Mo kingmax PC8500
HDD: seagate caviar 40 Go
graphic card that I try to install: Jetway X38XTEN512Q, n°7BC086T024484, based on HD3870 GPU.

Follow these steps:

Uninstall current graphics card drivers. Before you install your new card, you'll need to uninstall your current graphics card's drivers to avoid any potential conflicts. Right-click My Computer and select Properties. Under the Hardware tab, find the button to open the Device Manager. Your graphics card should be listed under the Display Adapter heading. Double-click the name of your graphics card to open a properties window for your current card. Last step: Under the Driver tab, click the Uninstall button.


Remove old card. Turn off your PC and unplug it from the wall. Open the case Make sure you first ground yourself by first touching a metal part of your PC case or by wearing an antistatic wrist strap. (Grounding yourself will prevent you from getting shocked and from unintentionally damaging your PC's components.) If you are replacing a graphics card, you'll need to remove a small screw attached to the back plate prior to taking out the card.

Install new card. It wouldn't hurt to page through your new card's instruction manual at this point. Then, take your new graphics card out of its foil wrapper and slide it into your motherboard's slot. Press down firmly with even force until it is securely in place (your system won't boot up unless the card is in all the way). Screw it into the back plate and close up your case.

Install new drivers. Turn on your PC and install the drivers. Windows XP should automatically recognize the new hardware and walk you through the installation wizard. If Windows doesn't detect the card, click Settings from the Start menu. Open the Control Panel and click Add Hardware. From there, a wizard will help you install the new drivers from the CD that came bundled with your new card. It's a good idea to check the graphic card vendor's Web site for more up-to-date drivers, just in case the vendor has released drivers since manufacturing your card. Once you've downloaded the drivers, simply restart your PC. Now, you're ready to start gaming.

If this doesnt work, then your card is BAD.

Motherboard with power no display


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.jetway.com.tw/jw/download_show.asp?productid=P4X400DBP

I think maybe the graphic card has died.
Try to add a new or used AGP graphic card
in the slot on the mainboard.
Check also the screen/ or cable on another pc for fault.

Good luck

Graphic card


Yes provided the expansion slot on the motherboard can fit this graphics card. If your motherboard has a built-in graphics chip then you most likely need to disable the on-board graphics before installing this graphics card and driver..

Palit hd3870 driver, can i use it with ddr2 memory?


Primo,

A graphics card has it's own Processor and graphics memory.
The Processor is a GPU,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

Slang? Graphics chipset.

This means it runs independent of the system resources;
the Processor and Ram Memory on the motherboard.

Means if they come out with a graphics card using GDDR1000, you can still use DDR2 Sdram ram memory.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
Regards,
joecoolvette

[TIP:

Windows running, install ALL of the graphics card's software.
The drivers, and the user interface;
(ATI? Catalyst Control Center)

It's okay as Windows won't use the software yet.

If you are asked if you want to restart your computer -> NO
Close all windows, go back to the desktop screen.
Turn the computer OFF.

Open the computer case, FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.
Remove the monitor cable from the motherboard, or previous graphics card.

Remove the old graphics card IF you were using one.
Install the new graphics card. Plug the monitor cable into it.
Close the computer case. Plug the computer into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Why?


Because when a device is installed on a computer, (Device = Graphics card in this case), Windows will 'break it's neck' to find suitable matching drivers.

If THE drivers for the graphics card are not already installed, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic drivers.
This = No.

Will cause a driver conflict.
Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?" ]

Diamond Radeon HD3870, 512MB DDR4


According to ATI this is a known issue. They refer problems to microsoft about this error as they say it is an o/s issue. Microsoft refers you back to ATI saying it is a thermal issue. I have an ATI card as well & have the same problem. Hopefully the next driver will fix this issue when released. Hope this helps.

Is My Computer Compatible With New Graphics Card?


You need to know if *********** board supports PCI-E, since your new VC is an PCI-E device. Check the mobo's manual if this can support PCI-E, if it is then it will be compatible (the next thing is the OS, check if the card supports your OS).
